Nora Roberts, hands down, is one of my favorite authors. Her writing is full of passion and adventure gripping me from the first book of hers I ever read. This book, THE WITNESS is no exception. It is pure beauty, how she crafts such an incredible love story, with thrilling elements for the reader to enjoy along the way. It’s no wonder I wanted to include one of her books in the 2018 Reading Challenge.
Several years back, a good friend gave me a copy of one of Nora Roberts books, I believe it was BLUE SMOKE. While I have only read a fraction of her numerous books, I have yet to find myself disappointed. I consider these books to be a sort of guilty pleasure I can never get enough of. In my mind, they fit in this category because they are pure entertainment with little brain power required. Sometimes, it’s how some of the best stories are.
THE WITNESS is the pick for guilty pleasure for the 2018 Reading Challenge. It seemed like the perfect spot to place a most exciting romance read. When first opened the reader is greeted with one form of romance. As the story progresses a love story blossoms.
The reader gets to know an independent woman who builds a life for herself that she is content with. Along the journey she unexpectedly meets a man whose desire is to help and protect her. This is no easy feat with a difficult past leading her to be rather self-sufficient. This relationship, like any other that is not perfect, it just has two people meant to be together.
Behind the scenes of the building love, Nora Roberts has other characters at play. These characters are mostly witnessed through the eyes of the main characters. Despite this, they still play a vital role to the story. These other characters bring trouble and conflict to the story, leaving the reader to question who will win in the end.
The biggest thrill of THE WITNESS is the writing. Nora Roberts has a way of making passion and love leap off the pages. The love, struggles, and raw emotion hook the reader, refusing to let go until the back cover is closed. This is probably why she is one of my favorites.
The suspense, passion and adventure add up to an amazing book that will not disappoint. I recommend this book to any interested in something different in the world of romance.
